Mojo Monday Challenge #114

Its Black Friday, and I hope all of you are having fun shopping! Me, I'm not so big on crowds, so I have decided to stay home today, and 'play' with my paper craft supplies. Here is my entry to the Mojo Challenge #114. The thing I absolutely love about Mojo Challenges, is all you have to do is select one thing: a stamp set to use, a color of card stock, or an embellishment, and from the layout, everything falls into place. That is exactly how all of my Mojo Challenges occur.
I used eskimo kisses pattern paper. For the solid card stock I used Old Olive (SU!), Rain, & Glass Slipper. I only used two colors of ink (to match the cardstock) Old Olive (SU!) & Rain. I used the check ribbon in Rain. I tied the bow separately and adhered with a glue dot. (gotta love those glue dots!) The snowman is from a retired stamp set 'happy winter' from Stampin' Up!. I used my SU! blender pen to color the stripes in his scarf in Old Olive, and his buttons in Rain. I used my SU! glue pen to 'color' his body, and applied SU! Dazzling Diamonds. (I am a firm believer that most cards need bling! - and a ribbon, and a button!) For the scalloped edge, I tried something new. I didn't like how the scallops came out with either of my edge punches from SU!. So, I took the guard off of my SU! corner rounder and made the scallop edge. Not too bad for my first time. (I know, I should have practiced first, but what the heck.)
Thank you for looking. Happy shopping. And don't forget the important things this season: your Lord, and your family & friends!
